About the Volvo XC90

Separating itself from any three-row full-size SUV in its class, the impressive Volvo XC90 provides elegant styling, luxurious comfort features, and advanced driver-assistive safety technologies which give you greater confidence behind the wheel. Beginning at $47,700 MSRP for an XC90 T5 Momentum FWD with room for up to 7, you'll also have the option to equip your XC90 with available all-wheel drive for complete control in nasty weather conditions. Additional trims include the sophisticated Inscription, sport-infused R-Design, and the flagship Excellence which sets the standard for a plug-in hybrid SUV. No matter which one you choose, you'll receive standard features including a panoramic sunroof, CleanZone Air Quality System, and Volvo On Call services.

A great choice for those living active lifestyles, the XC90 boasts generous seating for up to 7 full-sized adults. Each individual seat is designed to provide the occupant with the ultimate in comfort while the spacious interior includes a massive 85.7 cubic feet of cargo capacity -- ideal for carrying a weekend's worth of suitcases. Numerous turbocharged and supercharged engines are available on the XC90, spanning from 250 horsepower all the way up to the range-topping 400 horsepower from the T8 Hybrid powertrain. Uninhibited styling matched with advanced technology are only two reasons why the Volvo XC90 continues to be a hit with luxury buyers.

What the Critics Say

"One reason we like the XC90 so much is that it's far prettier than any of its competition. It's easy for a three-row crossover to turn out as a dull box, but Volvo's designers manage to drape delicate sheetmetal over the XC90's bones in a way that draws the eye. On this tester, the graceful Denim Blue bodywork contrasts against chrome and brushed-metal accents. Bold lighting elements, with LEDs and the well-known "Thor's Hammer" running lights, also add curb appeal." -- Roadshow by CNET

"The 2019 Volvo XC90 is the Swedish automaker's flagship SUV, a 3-row luxury vehicle that drips with alluring design and sophisticated features. As is Volvo's maxim, safety comes in spades in the XC90. Standard systems do everything from prevent a collision with a vehicle in your blind spot to automatically apply the brakes if an animal or other object is in the road. In addition to being a tech and safety powerhouse, the XC90 deftly competes with luxury-crossover SUVs like the Audi Q7, BMW X5 and Acura MDX thanks to innovative powertrains, including a plug-in hybrid variant." -- Kelley Blue Book

What's New for 2019

While it's true that the Volvo XC90 returns for 2019 with the same powertrain options as last year, several updates and revisions are visible across the lineup. Every 2019 XC90 comes equipped with four-zone climate control, third-row seating, heated washer nozzles, and updated infotainment software. Higher trim levels receive navigation, a tailored dashboard, rear window sunshades, and a Harman/Kardon premium audio system. Both the Convenience and Momentum Plus packages previously offered have been discontinued and replaced with new Advanced and Multimedia packages. The list of standalone options has been updated and the availability of both interior and exterior colors have been expanded.

2019 Volvo XC90 Powertrain Options

Multiple Powertrain Options

The two most popular engines available on the Volvo XC90 are the T5 and T6. While both are identically sized 2.0-liter 4-cylinders, there is one significant difference which separates the two. The T5 makes use of a single turbocharger while the T6 is twin-charged, meaning that both a supercharger and a turbocharger work in harmony to produce power.

Offered in both Front Wheel Drive (FWD) and All-Wheel Drive (AWD) configurations, the T5 gives you an economical yet responsive 250 horsepower. By comparison, T6 models include 316 horsepower and are equipped exclusively with all-wheel drive. Topping the XC90 engine lineup is the T8 Plug-In Hybrid which provides drivers with E-AWD, a total of 400 combined system horsepower, and an exceptional 54 MPGe fuel economy equivalent**.

Refined Interior

The cabin of the XC90 not only has elegant styling but spacious cargo room. The leather upholstery and aluminum and wood accents expresses the Scandinavian design and the 50/50 third row offers best-in-class legroom of 36 inches. And with up to 85.7 cubic feet of cargo space, the XC90 can accommodate any weekend getaway.

Plus with built-in Wi-Fi, you and your guests will always be connected. Available Sensus Navigation will help you get to your destination with its 3D imaging, voice recognition and routing options. And with built-in apps like Find Parking, you'll never be late to a dinner party again.

Volvo XC90 Towing Capacity

The 2019 Volvo XC90 has a maximum towing capacity of 4,000-5,000 pounds when properly equipped with the optional towing package. T5 front-wheel-drive models can tow up to 4,000 pounds. All other XC90 models have a 5,000 pound maximum towing rating, giving you plenty of power for towing a small boat, pair of jet skis, or a small pop-up camping trailer. Combined with a massive 85.7 cubic feet of cargo space, XC90 is ready for your next weekend adventure.

XC90 has an available air suspension system on all four wheels. This system comes in handy when loading cargo or hitching up a trailer. Simply press a button inside the cargo area to lower the rear of the car by up to 2 inches, giving easier access for loading cargo or lining up a trailer to its hitch.
